What is the Micron 5200 SSD and how is it different from the 5100 Series?

Posted on 15 May, 2018

There’s an easy way to speed up business-critical workloads that cripple hard drives: The Micron® 5200 series of SATA SSDs. Engineered on industry-leading 64-layer 3D NAND, the Micron 5200 SSD delivers best-inclass performance and capacity on the same proven architecture as the 5100 series.*

Designed for virtualized workloads that power your business, such as OLTP, BI/DSS, VDI, block/object, media streaming and more, the lowlatency Micron 5200 series of SSDs eliminates storage bottlenecks with fast, consistent performance – and a lower total cost of ownership. A single Micron SSD allows you to get 3X more performance than an entire rack of 24 10K RPM hard drives.** Imagine the impact — across your entire data center


Key Features

  • Industry-leading sequential reads/writes paired with 95,000 IOPS random reads and best-in-class random writes up to 33,000
  • Capacities up to nearly 8TB — all on industry-leading, 64-layer 3D NAND for a cost-optimized SATA platform that’s uniquely competitive against hard drives.
  • 50% more reliable than the typical SATA SSD, with the industry’s lowest annualized failure rate and MTTF (3 million hours versus the industry average of 2 million hours)
  • Same controller. Same components. New NAND. The result is easy quals, better performance and better value.
